We don’t know what event this is or who is winning, but we love watching. Two bull elk battling at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. To the bold goes the gold. Photo courtesy of Zach Rockvam.

Virtually unchanged except by the forces of nature, Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve in Alaska is as wild as it is vast. Through endless summer days and winter nights colored by the Northern Lights, visitors travel by rivers and mountains yet to be named. With no roads, no trails and very few people, it’s the perfect place for those seeking solitude and natural beauty. Photo by Carl Johnson, National Park Service.

First new picture of the year :D.

#TBT to this spectacular view from Yosemite National Park’s famous Horsetail Fall in 2017 when the waterfall looked like lava flowing down the side of El Capitan. This rare phenomenon “firefall” only happens for a short time in February – when there are clear skies, enough snow for the waterfall to flow and the setting sun hits the waterfall at just the right angle. This year, it doesn’t appear that Horsetail Fall will be putting on its show, but if you want take your chances, be sure to get your permit: https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/horsetailfall.htm

Love is an adventure, especially when it finds its way to national parks, wildlife refuges and other public lands. Each year, these special places make the perfect backdrop for proposals and weddings. Today we celebrate the romantic moments loved ones share on public lands.
